Michelle Como is a level 2 certified aromatherapist, licensed massage therapist, and reflexologist in the US. She is currently furthering her education in aromatic medicine and she is fascinated to match essential oils and herbs based on the individual's constitution and needs.
“As someone who cooks every day, I love incorporating herbs and spices into my meals. Not only for their many health benefits but also because they engage all of our senses. They add such an array of colour to our dishes, and the tantalizing fragrance and aroma fill my home and kitchen, making any simple dish so much more appealing and delicious. Just adding a simple spice, such as black pepper, to our meals not only has health benefits but adds warming, comforting and spicy notes to our dish.”
“So, is this pink peppercorn a pepper-like black peppercorn?” - I think you will be wonderfully surprised… Read along Michelle’s research and explore with her the different plants that have a berry that is commonly called the pink peppercorn. You will get a great botanical profile comparison for these closely related species - the Peruvian pepper tree (Schinus molle L.), Brazilian pepper tree (Schinus terebinthifolia), and the Peppercorn tree (Schinus areira), and then historical uses, chemistry profile, therapeutics for the spice and the essential oil, along with some exciting recipes.
You will find Michelle Como’s wonderful article in our fantastic new SPRING issue of AROMATIKA Magazine 9.1.
